Tony Campolo recently shared an idea on Red Letter Christians suggesting a method for resisting the potential registration of Muslims in the United States. Should this registration be enforced, Campolo calls Christians to choose the “Danish Option,” mirroring the actions of many Danish Christians during WWII.
During WWII, when Hitler required that all Jews be registered and then be publicly identified by wearing arm bands displaying the star of David, Danish Christians all over Copenhagen began wearing those same armbands, thus identifying with their Jewish neighbors.
Likewise, Campolo is calling Christians to register as Muslims (should the registration be implemented) as an attempt to foil the oppressive system of registration and to identify with our Muslim brothers and sisters in their distress.
Would you take up the Danish Option? If not, is there a more appropriate form of resistance?
